Unmarried minor females are presumed by law to have the same rights to their unborn or born child as would an adult woman. The minor cannot be forced to place her child for adoption or sign over her parental rights and retains sole custodial rights to her child unless a court rules otherwise. If an underage mother is in need of assistance for herself and her child she should contact the state's department of children and family services. There are also many independent organizations that will offer assistance to any mother and child/children without regardless of age. Birthright, 1-800--550-4900, http://www.birthright.org
Regardless of age, mother has sole control and custody.
According to the precedents set by Anderson v Anderson, there are a list of factors when deciding custodial arrangements of children. Chief among them is the qualifications and fitness of the parent and their ability to control and direct the children. If the underage mother is able to provide this, then she will retain custody.
no, that's custodial interference
Custody of her kids
A child is not property and continued "possession" does not have meaning with regard to rights. Regardless of how long the grandmother has been taking care of the grandson, she has legal rights to the child only if the mother, or the courts, formally granted her custodial rights. If the grant of custodial rights was never made, then the grandmother has no legal right to interfere with the mother resuming custodial care of the child. (Presuming the mother has not lost custodial rights to some other person or institution.)
If the mother is already the non-custodial parent, then the custodial father already has custody. If the question is meant to ask if the mother can give up her parental rights, then you would need to petition the court.
he needs to file for custody
why kentucky? but anyways you probably get baby bonuses or something relating
Single fathers have no assumed parental rights, thus the mother has sole custody and control. The must have parental rights first to obtain any type of custodial rights, such as visitation and/or joint custody. see link below
Yes. A non-custodial parent still has some parental rights, which can be relinquished. However, you should consult a licensed attorney before considering such an action.
No, if what is meant is, can a biological mother of a child give custodial rights to her mother without the necessity of court procedure and/or the agreement of the biological father.
in the case of the baby you have all the rights an adult mother would have, unless social services has become involved for some reason, as for yourself you need to be more specific.
